  • Excerpt: "I bought my phone last year to keep in touch with my parents when im out. I bought it for £29.99 from the vodafone shop. It wasnt new but had been fully reconditioned which means that all the parts inside are new.There is not many special features on this phone, the only points worth mentioning are that it can send text message and recieve them. My pgone has about 12 ringing tones, nothing exciting just the boring standard tones and some stupid ones ...

  • Excerpt: "When my mom gave me some money to buy my very first mobile phone, I chose this unit because it actually caught my site. It is indeed attractive to look at-- it's small enough, the shape fits good on one hand, and its color is very nice. It also says that it has a 4-liners display. I bought it and brought it home. Finally, when I used it for the first time, I discovered that the it's heavy for its small size, and it is actually not a 4-liners display. ...
  • Pros: small; attractive; good for making calls
  • Cons: heavy for its size;a bit confusing;very few ringtones;boring features

What a total and utter waste of money

  • Excerpt: "...way thats enough about that. The Maxon MN-1 is a basic phone available on Vodafone (if you can still find one). The phone is very big and could be used as a breeze block in a new house. The buttons are big and easy for text messaging. Text messaging is easy on the phone, though not great. The mobile was also on the most expensive call tarif in the world. My personal experiance of this phone is very poor and I would never buy another Maxon. The phone ...
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Everything about the phone, especially size and weight

  • Excerpt: "This phone is OK. It's very basic and does a job. I got this phone when I bought a Vodafone Pay As You Talk last year and my phone is nearly a year old and is still working perfectly. The battery life is quite short, mine needs charged every 36 hours. I hate the display. The way the text is made up is very poor, it looks like digital letters out of a bad 80's film. The phone has an impressive range of functions for such a cheap phone - it has ...
  • Pros: Large memory

  • Excerpt: "I recently bought a Vodafone MN-1 (a slightly altered 3204, the buttons are different) on UK Vodafone PaYT. I've owned this phone for only a few weeks, and it hasn't let me down. I admit it's not really the best phone ever made, but for a first phone, or a cheap phone for teenagers it really isn't that bad. OK, it may be text-only with no fancy graphics, have only 9 different ring tones (boring!) and be a little on the heavy side (about 160g with ...
  • Pros: Cheap, quite easy to use, looks OK in silver
  • Cons: Bit heavy, pretty boring

  • Excerpt: "...a nice little ericsson. The Maxon itself is a chunky piece of plastic with the basic function of allowing you to talk without a phone line, i.e. it is a mobile phone. However, like most of the nice new phones of today, it is rather functionless, much like your ordinary landline. Don't even think that you can put this in your pocket, because this horrid piece of plastic is probably too big. The quality of the phone however, does reflect its ...

  • Excerpt: "Having recently bought a Maxon Vodafone phone (MN-1), I was very excitied at the possibilities that this phone had to offer me. The phone itself is a pay-as-you-go phone and constantly needs topping up with money. As I'm an inquisitive person, I immediately looked through all the function, even though I had experimented on my friends' phones. This intrigue lasted a couple of hours and I searched through the whole of the phone's menus and options and ...
  • Pros: Small, good starter phone, easy to use

  • Excerpt: "...picture on this page, The Maxon is not small, it is not good. It is a four line text only display. It is very heavy and not particuly easy to use, the laberenth of menus does not help the matter. Although it isnt perfect, it is very cheap, and comes in a range of colours. It is very good for teenagers that need a cheap, userble phone. It is also good for keeping in the car as it has a very long batterly life. There is a big range of accessories availible ...
